In Topic: Frutescens: Why do people seem less interested in it?

20 September 2017 - 03:29 PM

Speaking strictly from my opinion here.

I personally don't think the flavor is all there. With other peppers there are several flavor notes but in my ( frutescens limited) experience they just don't taste as good or better as other species.


Agree, I also find the flavor of most Frutescens kind of one dimensional and boring.  I am mostly a Chinense and Annuum guy myself.

In Topic: Anyone familiar with Blackout Chili?

I think this was discovered by Tyler F. IDK like 2013 or so...


Yes, you're correct and my mistake.  Tyler Fatzinger, he also posts on FB chili forums.  I dont remember him ever revealing the cross characteristics either so I guess it'll remain a mystery. 


Sorry for the mixup!

Anyone know anything about the Blackout Chili?  Had one at Bowers Pepper Festival and it was one of the most painful pods I've eaten this season.  Instant stabbing pain on the back of my tongue and throat.


I think its a pepper created by Kevin Bane, he hangs out in FB chili forums.  He hasnt exactly expressed what the cross is, so cant help you there. 




In Topic: Ghost flavor

Big fan of Ghost peppers myself, that bhut flavor is unmistakeable to me.  I even make my own Ghost BBQ sauce as it pairs well with that sweet smokey flavor. 


Peach Bhuts all day long for me! 


In Topic: first time dehydrating and making powder

01 September 2017 - 05:12 PM

I am too lazy to remove the seeds before dehydrating but this year trying something new.  I cut the pepper like pepper rings and put in the dehydrator, they lose some of the seeds while drying and when done drying I put the dried rings in a One Gallon Freezer Bag and shake it vigorously for a couple minutes.  Shaking dislodges about 70% of the seeds from the rings and they fall to bottom of bag! 


This is working out pretty good, less labor intensive than trying to remove seeds from hundreds of pods at a time.
